Have you ever watched concrete being poured? They build a wooden frame around the area they are going to pour into, building it up to the depth they want and the shape they intend for it to become. Then they pour the cement and smooth off the top, working the bubbles out, and let it set up.
The frame forms the boundary of the concrete, causing it to take shape. We are living life today exactly as we have framed it with our words.
In Heb 11:3, the Bible says, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God.” This is how God made the world, framing it with his Word.
Don’t blame your parents or society or religion. Of course, bad things happen, even to good people, but the outcome of your life depends on what you say. Your eternal salvation depends on believing in your heart that Jesus is the Son of God and confessing with your mouth that He is your Lord. Romans 10:9.
If you have wayward children or a spouse that isn’t serving God, for instance, here is a good scripture to frame with. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Josh 24:15. Another good verse is Acts 16:31 which says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved, you and your household.”
If your body is sick and you need healing, frame your healing with these words: Matt 8:17 “He Himself took our infirmities, and bore our sicknesses.” Here is another good one. I Pet 2:24 “By whose stripes you were healed.”
Maybe you don’t like what your world has become. Maybe you are ready for a change. How can you change it? Reframe it. Start building your frame. Speak the Word of God.
I am today what I have made myself to become by the words of my mouth. We can frame our world just like God does, with our words.
